Condolence From: Beth Campbell
Condolence: I am deeply saddened to hear of Greg's passing and feel that I was truly blessed and honored to have had the pleasure of knowing and working with him. Greg was a trusted friend who was honest and decent and always chose the right path in his dealings as a representative for the Guild in looking after his brothers and sisters in the CCG. He always gave great advise and I am richer for having had him play such a large role in my career and for having been blessed to know him. My sympathies to Sue and the family.

Condolence: I want to offer my condolences to Greg’s family.
He was always there for his shipmates; reliable with a great sense of humour.
I looked forward to seeing him when we called into Amherstburg and recalled the pride he had in showing me his latest bike.
You will be greatly missed.

Condolence: Susan and family please accept our sincerest sympathy on Greg's sudden passing. Greg's dedication, service and loyalty to his fellow officers and the Guild was only surpassed by his love and commitment to his family. Greg eagerly shared stories of his family , his work and occasionally his bike, in equal measure, whenever we were gathered for Guild work and there was a lull in the action. Greg was committed to making a difference for his fellow officers and rest assured he did and he will be missed. Our deepest condolences on behalf of Capt. Mark Boucher National President,Capt Mike Burgess Eastern Branch President, the Eastern Branch Executive Board and Guild Staff.

Condolence From: Shawn Cook & Terese Herron
Condolence: We were both deeply saddened and shocked to hear of Greg's passing. Our thoughts and prayers are with Sue and family.

Greg touched many lives throughout his years of work and social activities. He was a jovial and fun loving character who was quick to point out the ray of sunshine even in the darkest moments.

The world is a whole lot less today, but Greg would not want us to harp on about his passing. He would say something like "Get over it Cook, it's time to put on your big boy pants!"

Fair winds and following seas, Greg.
